Improved detail rendition for greater image quality
The Leica M10 Monochrom occupies a special place within the M-System: its newly developed image sensor is designed exclusively for grayscale recordings and offers exceptional fine-detail rendition thanks to its exceedingly high, 40-megapixel resolution.
The fact that no color filter arrays are required means that there are fewer glass and filter layers to impede the transmission of light or cause deflections.
This is especially advantageous in a traditional rangefinder camera, and results in decreased, finer-grained image noise. In addition, the sensor’s enormous sensitivity range of ISO 160 to ISO 100,000 enables recordings with an extremely broad dynamic range – yielding images whose areas of shadow and illumination are clearly defined, particularly when shooting in uneven, high-contrast light.
Understated and discreet for low-profile shooting
The Leica M10 Monochrom is the epitome of discretion — which is why we chose to omit the familiar, and potentially eye-catching, red dot. In a similar vein, the “Leica M10 Monochrom” inscription on the top plate is considerably more subtle. The strict omission of any color-inlaid engravings further emphasizes the camera’s monochrome character.
The camera shutter is barely audible, enabling recordings in situations in which other cameras would be too obtrusive. Thanks to its understated appearance, the M10 Monochrom allows photographers to blend into the crowd and capture their subjects without drawing attention.
A reliable companion Made in Germany
The Leica M10 Monochrom is hand-crafted by accomplished specialists using superior-quality materials and elaborate methods of engineering.For example, the camera’s top and base plates are neither stamped nor molded, but milled from solid blocks of brass.
Due to its robust construction, the Leica M10 Monochrom can weather even the toughest external conditions.
‘Made in Germany’ guarantees the utmost quality, reliability and durability, ensuring long-term value and functionality. After all, a Leica is not just a camera, but represents a worthwhile, life-long investment.
